The only time I've installed a tube in my own bike in the last many years was for a dented rim that wouldn't seal back up tubeless. On my hardtail (dual-ply casings + CushCore) I don't even carry a tube anymore. If a sidewall gash is too big for plugs I'll ride out flat on the CC. On my dual FS bike, I'll carry a tube when riding with other people - I don't want to be that guy - but I just strap it on for the day or throw it in my hip pack. Again running dual-ply tire casings so it's a case of packing around a bunch of extra weight in exchange for the peace of mind.
